Just gaining interest to see if there would be any demand for some 'basic' repro 60mm mortar tubes. I can get them, but depending upon demand will depend upon costs. I am just testing the waters here people so dont jump up and down on me! There are as near to the original sizes as i can get them. They are Postal tubes so the ends are just plain plastick black end caps as to get them in metal/aluminium type is too expenive to bother with They are not attached but nothing a bit of glue wouldnt sort. The black on it is a little glossy but could be dulled down with a bit of DIY painting i think (again, thats up to you though!) The inner tube is not attached to the outer tube however a bit of glue internally would resolve that too!

Below are a few pics i have of a sample. Not the best pictures in the world i agree, will try get some clearer ones sorted. Prices are looking to be between £3 and £5 per tube, but i would veer more to the £3 if there was sufficient demand. UK delivery only and that would be AT COST, meaning i charge what it costs to post to you!

Have a look see, any Q's or comments then ask or send me a PM. :wink:

We are starting now the production of repro tubes - all 3 sizes paper tubes are custom made - to fit the original size - in one papermill, but we have a little problem how to make the steel caps with all the pressed writings... But will be a little more expensive.. I will put some pictures when we finish the firs set.
Regards!
Frankie
